Police and fire blotter

Posted: Friday, April 28, 2000

Juneau police, fire officials, hospital officials and state troopers reported:


A woman, 31, requested a safety check about 11:30 a.m. Thursday from an undisclosed address. She reported that a boy, 14, had been assaulted by a man, 38. Investigation by police continues.

Disorderly conduct:

Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School reported a case of disorderly conduct about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Police transported a boy, 12, to Miller House for disrupting class.

Vehicle accidents:

A few minutes before midnight Friday, police responded to the report of a vehicle off the pavement near the intersection of Mendenhall Loop Road and Stephen Richards Memorial Drive. They found a 1996 Dodge Neon in the ditch. A man, 21, said he was a passenger and couldn't identify the driver. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $3,000. It was privately towed from the scene.


A school official from Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School reported about 2 p.m. Thursday that a harassing e-mail message was received at the school. A report was taken by the police at the request of the complainant. The e-mail message was posted as an answer to the Question of the Week on the school's Web page. The question was, ``Do you feel like there is violence in your school?'' One answer made the school's administration uncomfortable because it was harassing a student by name. The school hoped police could trace the message to its source. However, police said they are still gearing up to do such tracing unaided.

Traffic stop:

Police conducted a traffic stop on Egan Drive inbound in the Lemon Creek area about 8 a.m. Thursday. They cited a woman, 24, for driving with a suspended license and for operating a vehicle at an unsafe speed. She was provided with courtesy transportation and released. Her vehicle was impounded. Alcohol was involved in the incident.


Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to an alarm at 8:49 a.m. Thursday from Juneau Recovery Hospital. However, the fire alarm was canceled before firefighters left the station.

Capital City responded to an alarm at 9:13 a.m. Thursday at Jordan Creek Mall. Workers were found to be fiddling with the alarm system and had inadvertently triggered it; there was no fire.

Capital City responded to a report about 10:15 a.m. Thursday of a ``man down in the woods'' near Auke Lake. Apparently the man (age unknown) was uninjured and simply had chosen to sleep in the shade; he had moved on before emergency personnel arrived.
